Malaysia Airlines launches fly now pay later

Malaysia Airlines has entered into a regional partnership with hoolah, an omnichannel Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) platform.

Through this collaboration, travelers in Malaysia, Singapore and soon Hong Kong, will be able to book their getaway with Malaysia Airlines online and pay for their flights via hoolah’s flexible three-month, interest-free payment option.

This means that travelers can fly to their destination and enjoy their vacation before paying for the ticket in full, spreading the cost over three monthly interest-free installments.

Arvin Singh, CEO and Co-Founder of hoolah, said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Malaysia Aviation Group in Asia and support their business objectives as we push forward together to accelerate the recovery and growth of the travel and tourism industry. As countries in the region gradually open up their borders, we look forward to making travel more accessible and affordable for travelers, along with the flexibility to pay for their holiday over time.”

Malaysia’s borders are expected to reopen on April 1 following a two-year closure brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hoolah’s BNPL is also available in Malaysia on Journify, an integrated one-stop travel and lifestyle digital platform through which travelers can discover new places such as attractions, food and more; plan their trips around Malaysia; and shop local products.

Lau Yin May, Group Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer of Malaysia Airlines, said, “We are excited to collaborate with hoolah as it provides another payment option and flexibility for customers to book their flights with Malaysia Airlines and shop on Journify. This marks our first-of-its-kind partnership with a BNPL provider in Asia, and it couldn’t be timelier as we anticipate growing demands for travel with the reopening of our borders soon.”
